It’s the moment we have been waiting for at FryAI … AI is cooking up piping hot fries at a record pace! 🔥

What’s new? The world’s first AI restaurant, CaliExpress, has opened in Pasadena, California.

How does it operate? The AI masterminds in the kitchen include a grill robot and “Flippy,” a creation of Miso Robotics, adept at frying. Flippy can produce an impressive 250 pounds of fresh and crispy French fries per hour, while the grill robot churns out 100 patties in the same time frame, all without the need for breaks or days off. The restaurant’s ordering system is also powered by AI and facial recognition from Pop ID, which keeps track of food choices and payment method, making for a streamlined customer experience. Apart from CaliExpress, Flippy has also made its way into restaurants like White Castle and Jack in the Box.

How can AI help? While concerns about job displacement arise, store owner Vic Aulakh emphasizes that the technology not only reduces certain roles but also creates jobs in technology maintenance. At CaliExpress, the robot chefs are not left unattended. Technicians monitor them around the clock, ready to intervene if issues arise during meal preparation. Not to mention, many fast food restaurants are struggling to find individuals who want to operate menial tasks like frying, so this new AI infrastructure shows potential to fill job openings and reduce employee turnover costs. Rob Anderson, co-founder of Miso Robotics, explained, “Flippy is really good at repetitive tasks like operating the fryer in those dangerous environments. That way, the people working the restaurant can focus on the human element.”


Q: How much does the combined laundry of everyone in the White House weigh?

A: A Washing-ton. 🫧

What’s new? The White House is implementing a new requirement on developers of major AI systems to disclose their safety regulations and test results to the government.

How will this work? While software companies have committed to specific categories for safety tests, a common standard is yet to be established. The National Institute of Standards and Technology is developing a uniform framework for assessing safety, aligning with the government’s commitment to responsible AI deployment. This framework will be used in the government’s assessment of new AI models. The Commerce Department is also working on a draft rule for U.S. cloud companies providing servers to foreign AI developers.

“We know that AI has transformative effects and potential. We’re not trying to upend the apple cart there, but we are trying to make sure the regulators are prepared to manage this technology.”

-Ben Buchanan, White House special adviser on AI

What’s the point? Ben Buchanan, the White House special adviser on AI, said the government wants “to know AI systems are safe before they’re released to the public.” What “safe” means is a whole other issue.


AI can listen to your conversations and act as a second conscience … 🤯

What’s up? 19-year-old Avi Schiffmann is making waves with his latest creation, Tab, a small circular pendant that operates as a unique blend of therapist, life coach, and confidant.

What does Tab do? Tab, with a 30-hour battery life, employs a microphone and Bluetooth to transmit daily conversations to the cloud, where AI models, including ChatGPT, analyze and transcribe them. From there, Tab acts as a non-judgmental companion, providing insights and reflections on the wearer’s actions.

What about privacy? Despite initial skepticism about privacy concerns, the $100,000 ($600/tab) generated from early unit sales indicates public interest. Schiffmann reassures users that Tab won’t store, sell, or share user data with any other users or public databases.
